Hello fellow forum members!
Has anyone tried the new Vixen Star Guy Alt-Az Pro Mount and Tripod as to whether or not it is really any better than the Vixen Porta Mount? I know it is listed for $499. I have been debating back and forth about getting another scope. I want a larger refractor to go with the dob beyond the one I currently have which is a Meade 70mm AZ on a small and shakey aluminum tripod. The one I keep considering is the SW 100mm ED OTA refractor. Just wondering if the f/9 scope would be a good fit for the Star Guy mount and tripod or would the tripod still be too shakey for it?
Thanks for any input!
